'American Idol' Update: Nikki Sixx Being Eyed, Lionel Richie Still Contender & Secret Seacrest Meeting

Via TMZ

They REALLY want Ryan back....

And Lionel will work, but Nikki?

According to new reports, ABC is still trying to lock down Ryan Seacrest as the host for the rebooted 'American Idol'. There was reportedly a face to face sit-down this week between Ryan and ABC execs, but still no word if he's signed. Some rumors are floating that while Ryan may have asked for an executive producer title, the show was adamant that he not get that. The reason?

Because Katy also asked for it, and they said no. They were worried by giving it to him, they would be stirring up drama.

Now onto the judges.

It's looking likely that the legendary Lionel Richie will be joining Katy Perry, but to the tune of MUCH LESS. Sources are saying he'll be making between $3 and $5 million, as opposed to Katy's whopping $25 mill.

And finally, we're finally learning who the 3rd judge may be:

Motley Crue member Nikki Sixx!!

Those same sources are also saying that Nikki will make less than Lionel.
